Pets of the week, March 25, 2020

Published 6:22 pm Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Our featured pets this week are Katie and Coco.


Katie is a precious 8-month-old gray tabby. She is a friendly, bright-eyed girl that loves to explore the world around her. Katie was a small kitten when she was brought to the humane society six months ago. She has waited patiently for her special person to come and give her a permanent home. If you are looking for a fun and playful teenage kitten to keep you company and bring joy to your heart, then come for a visit with Katie!

Coco is a cute 2-year-old hound mix. She was surrendered to the humane society because her owner moved out of state. Coco is very friendly and outgoing. She weighs 40 pounds and is black and white and has lots of freckles on her legs. Coco has plenty of energy and would love to have a person who will take her on long walks and give her the attention that she deserves. Can you give Coco a second chance at her forever home?

We wish good health and strength to everyone in our community during this trying time of coping with the changes in our lives due to Covid-19. While we practice self-distancing from people to slow the spread of the virus, pet owners may have the opportunity to spend a lot more time with their furry four-legged friends. Here are some ideas on how to spend quality time with your dog or cat. 

Health providers are encouraging outdoor exercise as long as social distancing is observed, so this is a great time to take your dog on daily walks or play a game of fetch in the backyard. Brush up on your dog’s obedience training so when isolation restrictions are lifted you can impress your friends with your perfectly trained pup. Teach your dog a new trick or two. There are some great ideas online for making cat toys with items you already have around the house. An empty box or paper bag will provide plenty of entertainment for your cat and your family as you watch your kitty enjoy her new hiding spot. Don’t forget to have an ample supply of pet food on hand and any medications that your pet requires. Our pets are wonderful providers of emotional support so take advantage of your furry companion’s unconditional love during this time.

Low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter surgery is available for pet owners with low and fixed incomes.  Call our Happy Paws Clinic today at (859) 691-1137 for an appointment. Please help control pet over-population by having your pet spayed or neutered.
